Welcome to the December, and final, edition of The Star Residences blog for 2021
We finish off the year applauding the tremendous construction progress of The Star Residences. The apartments are therefore on track to complete and settle the development in early 2022. This means, if you haven’t already commenced your finance application, should you be obtaining finance to settle your apartment, you must do so immediately. Delaying this start means you run the risk of not settling on time, and the developer reserves its right to impose penalty interest on late settlements.
(See below for wonderful time lapse videos of the construction progress.)
Bank Valuation Inspections
We will announce the commencement of bank valuation inspections in January so please look out for this all-important email from Property Settlement Solutions. These inspections are for your banks’ valuers only; you will get your opportunity to inspect your apartment shortly thereafter and before settlement.
If you still require finance assistance, please contact:
The Star Gold Coast has welcomed Australia’s first Dorsett hotel to the Gold Coast on the day of a special milestone. Construction of the Hotel, located within the tower and under the residential apartments, reached practical completion, with its doors opened on Boxing Day 2021.
Dorsett Gold Coast General Manager Michael Foster said, “Today (marks an exciting milestone as we move a step closer to welcoming guests, as) we announce that the Dorsett Gold Coast will officially open on Boxing Day. Here on the Coast, we’re thrilled to be the very first Dorsett Hotel in Australia and offer a new, young, vibrant brand to our city”. Dorsett Hospitality International already has a total of 55 properties in 25 major cities across the world and has identified the Gold Coast as the perfect location for its first Australian hotel.
Located within the Star Gold Coast’s world-class entertainment and leisure precinct, the Dorsett Gold Coast’s guests can experience world-class bars and restaurants, a theatre and conference and entertainment facilities.
Mark Hodge, General Manager Hotels & Residences at The Star Entertainment Group said “The Star is delighted to welcome Dorsett to the Gold Coast and are very excited that world recognised brand Dorsett has chosen the Gold Coast and us here at The Star GoldCoast to launch its first hotel in Australia.”
“We are looking confidently ahead to a long-awaited return to normal operations and will be working closely with Dorsett, as they get ready to welcome first guests to the hotel” says Mark.
Destination Gold Coast Consortium Project Director Jaime Cali said “Dorsett Gold Coast is located in the soon to be completed 53 storey hotel and apartment tower and construction has created 1,500 jobs, and we look forward to continuing to be a major employer on the Gold Coast when we open.”
Dorsett’s bold expansion will continue in the coming months and years with new-build Dorsett Hotels in Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth following the Gold Coast opening, showing confidence in the Australian tourism industry’s ability to recover from the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Dorsett team has been welcoming guests to the Dorsett from Boxing Day.
Bookings are available now.
Isoletto Pool Club and Isoletto Privé
The Star Gold Coast has unveiled a luxurious pool club and skyline party and events space on level six of the new $400 million, 53 storey hotel and apartments tower on Broadbeach Island.
In a sign of confidence in the state’s economic resurgence and an expected summer tourism blitz, The Star is supercharging the expansion of its leisure and entertainment destination with the launch of Isoletto Pool Club and Isoletto Privé events space.
Located on the luxe leisure deck with sweeping views of the Gold Coast shoreline and hinterland, Isoletto Pool Club will be exclusive to all hotel guests within The Star’s resort, including The Star Grand, The Darling and Dorsett Gold Coast, while Isoletto Privé will be available for private and corporate occasions, events and celebrations including weddings and a border-opening, end of 2021 New Year’s Eve party.
Isoletto Pool Club
Inspired by the sun-kissed lifestyle that surrounds the iconic beachside resort, with sweeping views of the Gold Coast skyline, the Isoletto Pool Club offers The Star’s hotel and The Star Residences’ guests the perfect oasis in the sky, a spot to take a relaxing dip, sip on a delicious cocktail, savour a snack as they lounge in a cabana and reminisce of island getaways past.
Exclusive to all hotel guests across The Star’s resort’s four accommodation offerings, Isoletto Pool Club features a stunning pool with an impressive 12m long viewing wall overlooking Broadbeach, plenty of elegant yet comfortable daybeds around the pool deck as well as ‘wet lounges’ built into the pool itself.
The restaurant and lounge with indoor and outdoor seating will serve up a range of appetising light dishes, while those looking to relax on the deck can order spritzes and cooling cocktails from the Isoletto Pool Club’s drinks menu straight to their cabana or daybed.
Plus Architecture, an award-winning local architecture and interior design practice, created the Pool Club to reflect the region’s sandy coastlines. Injected with the sun’s rays and purposefully curated to both relax and refresh visitors, the space’s palette is warm and calming, with subtle pops of bright lemon and tangerine providing a nod to the energetic nature of the Gold Coast lifestyle.
Isoletto Privé, the leisure deck’s dedicated events space also designed by Plus Architecture, expands on The Star Gold Coast’s already extensive events offering to deliver a refined coastal venue for stunning weddings, corporate events and private celebrations.
Including a sprawling lawn, deck and terrace, the new event destinations allow guests to enjoy a seamless indoor or outdoor event, taking advantage of the exquisite subtropical Gold Coast weather and panoramic views of the Gold Coast seascape and hinterland.
The sunlit filled space can suit both casual canapes and cocktail parties or more premium corporate conferences. And with elegant designs, a sophisticated menu of local dishes, and access to high-end AV, the southern side of the leisure deck creates a blank canvas for people or businesses looking for a fresh take on their next grand event.
